Rooftops

 

WWCE has three rooftop projects: Clattinger, Fisheries and Langford. All three projects were purchased from Wiltshire Wildlife Trust (WWT) in December 2013.

The Clattinger Farm House installation is 4kW and is situated on a garage roof at WWT’s Clattinger Farm Nature Reserve. Clattinger is considered the finest remaining example of enclosed lowland grassland in the UK, and is of international importance for its hay meadow wildflowers. You can learn more about the reserve here.

The Fisheries Cottage installation also is 4kW and is on the roof of a cottage we own and currently rent out at Langford Lakes Nature Reserve. The nature reserve covers an expanse of 31 hectares, with four lakes and an 800m stretch of the Wylye River, which is designated as a Special Area of Conservation. To learn more about the reserve go here.

The Langford Visitor Centre installation is the largest at 10kW and is on the roof of the Lakeside Building at Langford Lakes Nature Reserve.

The three projects are performing in line with expectations at 996, 670 and 893 KWh/KWp (kilowatt hours per kilowatt peak solar generator) respectively. The lower performance at Fisheries is due to shading, as we oppose to further tree lopping.
